Has a rather expensive eating establishment on the property, but the views are great all around the grounds. We didn't eat there, but went to tour the outside and admire the view of Bamberg. Recommend walking up there via the green park way versus the streets.

A very nice place to dine both Lunch and Dinner. Great choice of Franconian & Bavarian Food as well as some intl Dishes, local Beers and Wine. Friendly tourist oriented staffs - speak some English. Of course you'd find other resto with much better food, but the view is excellent eventhough the price is a bit higher than the one... More

An amazing place, amazing views and amazing services and food! We had a few drinks in the court yard, some great German beer and ate in the courtyard. I had the fillet steak and it was delicious, the kind of steak your knife guilds through. If you're in Bamberg, do not miss going here for an evening meal, I believe... More

We stopped here on our way out of town after seeing a great deal of old Bamberg. I would recommend the car or a trolley/bus to get up to this place as it has a fairly steep climb to it. The views are incredible and the food was really good too at this former castle now restuarant. You can pay... More

We ate our Sunday lunch here. Food and service were very good and atmosphere was excellent. It's not a very big place, so reservation is recommended if you are planning on eating on busy evenings. You can't beat the view of Bamberg from the castle on a clear day.

The dining room of this ancient castle on a hill overlooking the city of Bamberg is positively baronial. It was a single sitting set menu advertised as four courses but... More

Myself and a friend stayed in Bamberg for five days in June 2011. We ate in the restaurant once during the day and twice on different evenings, we in fact spent our last evening at the castle. Apart for anything, the location is straight out of a movie! We had amazing food, I recommend the liver dumpling soup for starters,... More
